Training consultations are free. The trainer will meet with you and your dog to determine your training goals and assess the best course of action to achieve them. These sessions will last 30-45 mins, and are the first step in your training journey!
Puppy Training Classes:
Puppy training classes include our popular Puppy Preschool daycare and an additional 1 hour of basic obedience training, broken up into three sessions throughout the day as puppies don't have long attention spans! This will help your puppy stay focused during their training and allow them to learn proper play when they are here too. The training sessions will consist of: potty training, sit, down, sit/stay, down/stay, leave it, place, come when called, leash training, wait, tricks, and the removal of any unwanted behaviors (barking, chewing, digging, and jumping).
The Basic Obedience classes are 1 hour training sessions. These classes consist of sit, sit/stay, down, down/stay, leave it, place, leash training, wait, come when called, tricks, and the removal of any unwanted behaviors.
The Intermediate Obedience classes are 1 hour training sessions. These classes introduce: heel training, distractions, sit/stay from a distance, down/stay from a distance, and walking on leash with distractions.
The Advanced Obedience classes are 1 hour long training sessions. These classes will introduce walking off leash, heel off leash, sit/stay out of sight, down/stay out of sight, and advance place.
If there is an unwanted behavior you would like to work on with you dog, our trainer can create a personalized training plan for you. These behaviors can include but are not limited to: fear, stranger danger, aggression, barking, chewing, digging, jumping, etc.
